I had mine removed December 2010 due to Hashi's. I was quite ill before the surgery, so for awhile afterward I thought I felt pretty good. I did have a quick reduction in joint pain, brain fog, and general exhaustion, but developed a new set of problems. It is extremely difficult for me to lose weight. I still go through periods of weeks where I can hardly stay awake through the day. I also go through periods of deep depression that last about a week. I was having horrible muscle spasm for several months, but a reduction in my Synthroid stopped that within a few days. Some days I feel like I have a lot of energy, some days it's an effort to put one foot in front of the other. My levels are all perfect, so I guess I just have to live with that. Hashi's doesn't go away just because you have your thyroid removed, much to my disappointment. Perhaps you can share a little more detail about the ways you are feeling bad? Feel free to message me if you like.
Luckily I have a amazing Dr. was just hoping to run across someone that has hashimoto or hypothyroid

Have you talked to your doctor about the way you feel ? Talk to them about how you've felt since the operation. One thing they may try is adjusting any medication you're taking.

This isn't uncommon. I would suggest that you talk with your Dr because it could be that your medication needs adjusting.
I see that you belong to the Dealing with Depression team. Depression can also aggravated by medical conditions, including thyroid issues. If you are meaning THIS with the 'feeling normal', then certainly talk with your Dr and/or Therapist.
